John 16:23-28

“Whatever you ask the Father, he will give you in my name.”

In this Gospel Jesus says that you can go to God because God loves you.

Jesus does not die to change God into love – but to remind us that God is love. He comes not because God so hated the world – but because God so loved the world.

The Gospel today reminds us in a very simple and straightforward way that in everything there is the love of God – and we never could have known that if Jesus had not told us so. Jesus brought to us the love of God.
